In danger of losing your windmill?
Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).
Anything to keep your windmill alive.
This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.
I'm No, 1...
No trips...relying on dash-mounted GPS.
Atlanta ice / snow storm of 2014
Morning and afternoon doctor visits, with a free lunch thrown in. All handled by the old 750. Great day... hanging with daughter, granddaughter, and of course Jill....
I'm not going anywhere.
Got out yesterday before the snow came again Sunday.
I use it all week long at work in western PA.
Boro of Queens in NYC
North East Illinois to south central Tennessee, with blowing and drifting snow on I-57. Driving a 26' U-Haul truck.
Took a trip to see ice covered lake erie at port clinton ohio
Last local place? A grocery store. Last far off destination? Washington D.C.!
Hoping to get mine back this week.
nothing this week.
this week. It's the second week of sun, sand and surf on the beach in Mexico. Hard to get lost on the beach
Pay some local bills that was due this month.
Washington, DC to Baltimore, MD and back.
Boston. Tennessee next week.
Made a short trip to Baltimore and back. Weather cooperated and had no issues.
Drove up to Ottawa for the opening of the winterlude......
Just using to drive to work and back home for the last few weeks.
Well, when I can actually GET to work.
Jo, cat and I left Atlanta on 9 January. Stops so far have included Mobile, AL, Biloxi, MS, Kerrville, TX, Las Cruces, NM, Lake Havasu City, AZ, Las Vegas, NV and Desert Hot Springs, CA where we're currently visiting.
Reason for trip? Buses By the Bridge in Lake Havasu, an annual tribal gathering of approximately 375 VW buses.
Turnaround will include routing through Joshua Tree NP or Anzo Borrego Desert State Park (decisions!) into Quartzsite, AZ, where we plan to spend 3 days or so exploring the quaint charms of its flea markets and RV parks.
That's all I got so far... No hiccups, no road colds and only one slightly injured mouse.
George, Jo & Ray
Let's hope it will be peaceful and rewarding.....
Nothing out of the ordinary this week, just the usual trip to work and shopping. Weather was not as bad as earlier predictions, which was welcome!
Going to update my Nuvi 855 and use it as a backup to my in-dash-mounted unit.
Stayed home this past week, mainly because it took me two days to find the Jetta in all the snow, and the wife's white Edge blended in with the snow making it a bit difficult to locate
Picked the wrong weekend to go. Quite a bit of rain here finally.
Heading to Nashville TN tomorrow, then Memphis.
Florida, for the month of Feb.
Washington, DC to Dover, DE and back.
In Ontario on Feb 17th, I think I will go to the cottage for some ice fishing as the whole weekend is no fishing license needed.
Keeping it alive, folks!
Made a safe round trip to Kroger's!!
Planning to head to New Buffalo, MI this weekend for a brief getaway.
I'm new to POI alerts. It seems that they usually go off when I'm right on top of them. What is the recommended distance beforure announcing, say, a store or buurgerdoodle?
Only you can answer that question. I will caution you about having too many alerts being triggered. They slow the unit down because they drain processing power and too many going at the same time can cause system lockups because of multiple calls to the sound routine.
Many of us have learned we only need a few POI alerts so each one is separate and distinct. Just because you have loaded a POI file and have an alert tone, it doesn't mean you need to set a proximity or speed trigger. Let's say you like to stop at bugerdoodle but don't necessarily want to know every time one is in the neighborhood, leave the alert and don't set a proximity. If you tell the GPS to find one, it will announce your arrival.
To a sporting good store in an unfamiliar part of the metro area. All because their website said that was the store that stocked what I needed.
Gotta love the snow storm here. Feel bad for the people, no concept of how to drive in snow
The Garmin is helping greatly for getting around, as this is my first visit to the Rio Grande Vally area.
but plans for several
1. operate in the 7QP amateur radio contest from several counties in Wyoming
2. travel to the Star Garnet area of Idaho
3. Layton to Davenport
4. travel to Vancouver BC
We escaped TN about 10 days ago and are boondocking in various spots in Florida.
Now if I can just figure out why the NUVI 50 thinks I traveled 26000 miles getting here
King Of Prussia Mall in PA
Been working from home since Tuesday because of the winter weather in Charlotte. I hope to get out for a while this weekend.
